done them from darn near a century. these don't look so bad. like it or not, the majority of americans believe that global warming is an issue. we need to develop clear energy sources. fossil fuels may be a difficult problem. we are subsidizing thingings. it is cheaper to produce energy from natural gas. it is a subsidies. other than it is natural gas there. it is 63 cents compared to $53. that is not a pay off to me. >> i will have to disagree with rick. last time wind energy had any impact was in the century. we have moved in oil and natural gas. but let's get rid of subsidies and let them sink or swim. wind energy will sink and we'll be better off. it is behathe sector we'll pour billions into it >> the wind farms are kind of methadone clinic. we'll reenact the two percent . part of the bargain let's get america off of a far more dangerous drug than corn or ethanoyl. it hurts food shoppers and tears up the inside of the engine. >> two wrongs don't make a right. what john was referring to was windmills in places like norway. >> and holland. >> and what is happening the wind sector to

to be a workshop. what happens in san francisco, people come here late and don't know the neighborhoods. and what is been going on in the neighborhoods. and it's the neighbors that can tell you. and i support the idea that you, since you were responsible for water and sewage, that you take charge. that is your responsibility. the water sheds is your responsibilities. so i am here supporting the residents from lake merced, because the lake is the most -- was at one time the most beautiful lake in any city. because i used to go over there and fish, i am a fishing woman. and i would like to continue. and i agree about although i do own a gun. but i don't believe that there should be a place out there where there is a park, where people are shooting bullets. bullets can go anywhere, because it don't have no name on it, in the direction it should go. i feel as though when i go and practice for my shooting, it's inside. it's not outside. and it's there in davis city. so i hope you listen to what the people are saying here. and support and be a part of which we are a part of you. and do the right thing.
in the book is our entrepreneurial culture that allows us to have the advantage. i don't mean the entrepreneur at the top, the steve jobs model or the great industrialists. what i mean is that companies that do well in the manufacturing space listen to the ideas of their employees, and are encouraging employees to come up with efficiencies this production to figure out how to assemble things more efficiently or how to make products that are more innovative, and they are soliciting those ideas. here is where i think a lot of the traditional critique on manufacturing misses the mark. robert rice, who makes the argument that there's knowledge worth -- people like lawyers, my profession, doctors, bankers, who are knowledge workers, and then there's manufacturers, and they completely miss the idea of modern manufacturing. modern manufacturing requires a lot of knowledge. these are people who are thinkers, who are innovating, and lawyers, i tell you, require a lot of repetitive work. people who say lawyers, you know, we draft documents, templates, and it's repettive. distinction is artificial, and t

they verve us. not the other way around. we don't work to make their lives better. they are supposed to make ours better. the operative word here being work. so much doesn't seem to be working though at all inside the beltway. posturing and puffery replace policy and principle. how often did the fiscal cliff even come up during the presidential debate? presumably we could have worked on this problem before now with just a few days left in the year? no wonder so many people are tuning out of politics all together these days because it always seems to be zero some gain with the taxpayers left holding the bag. they are the ones forced to turn over more of their hard earned money to a system that seems utterly incapable of proper management. so thanks, mr. president, for coming back to washington. let's hope it's for real work not just for the show of it. the per pettial razzle dazzle as i like to call it the first lady and the obama daughters, lucky them, are staying on the island, and that's estimated to cost the taxpayers as much as $200,000. apparently president obama's statement that we're
up at the house of these journalists and i don't know what would they do? what would they do? >> i don't know what they would do? i guess they'd maybe protest. i really don't know what they're going to do. i've had some phone calls that some people want to organize that. i've got really mixed feelings about that right now. >> but in your gut how do you feel? should we just complain about it as you are quite publicly and not show up at the journalists' house to just aggravate the situation even more? >> well that's what it is, then we're just as bad as they are. this is their personal agenda to make this happen, to put our families in harm's way, to go back and give it to them at the same way it's not they're in danger, it's to show how upset we are of what they've done. maybe that's what needs to be done. i'd rather not but i'm not going to stop other gun owners and their frustration in letting the editors know the lack of restraint they had with this particular view of theirs. >> scott surmervil summerville, so much for being with us this this morning. >> thank you. >>> in just an
that aren't need to be required to do so. we need to improve the public oversight. right now they don't have to comply with our foundational safeguards, david. like the clean water act. safe drinking water. that needs to be changed so that all of these companies are fracking in the most responsible way possible. >> let me put a fine point on this. bob dean from the nrcd action fund is willing to go along with helping the chinese develop their natural gas reserves so that they don't become too dependent on coal. i think that's news. >> what we're trying to do is to encourage the chinese to promote all kinds of clean technology. we've had an office in beijing since 1995 and 30, 35 people there, we have good contacts in the government. good contacts in the business community and we're making a difference there, but what it's about, is helping the chinese to improve their efficiency. david, their industrial efficiency is improved by two-thirds since 1980, but they're still 15 to 20% behind where they need to be. they are he going to get there in the next-- >> let's be realistic, you're comparing

their colleagues to pass something before the end of the year. they don't think it's a win for them to keep fighting. that means letting taxes go up on the rich. let's see what senator isaacson said. >> the truth of the matter is if we go off the cliff, the president will come back and proposing what he said in washington and we'll adopt it. why should we put the markets in turmoil and people in misunderstanding and lack of confidence? why don't we act now? >> okay so he says might as well do it. but you know the republican reason for not doing it now is? >> senate republicans want a deal done. but house republicans are in total chaos. >> why do they want a deal january 3rd or 4th rather than now? >> if all tax rates go up, any deal can be called a tax cut. it's simple like that. if you go over the cliff, anything's a tax cut. >> if you do it now how's it interpreted? >> the interpretation will some primary voters is you danced around on rates. >> or they pass a bill cutting taxes continuing the bush tax cuts for under $500,000 a year. something they agree on. >> because of what bob's sayin
of somebody who might be under threat. >> the only people upset with this are the people who don't own gun. i have a gun, if you want to find out what the business end of that looks like, come through my house. it won't matter if i'm in the paper or not. the paper, in fact, that's the point. letting people know you own a gun is a safety factor. putting it on the door this house protected by smith & wesson, the bad guys are going to go somewhere else. >> you know what it is, it reminded me when i was living in allentown, where you once hitched, people would put alarm signs on their houses when they really didn't have the alarm which ticked me off because i paid for my alarm. >> i had a car alarm. and i couldn't really afford it so i was one of those people. you are a former magazine editor. this is hardly irresponsible. there is a way to do this story like there always is. they could have done it like published the number of people in each town and went town by town. but it's basically i think also demonizing the gun owners, as well. this is a manhattan-based paper, a suburb. they always do th
. >> we don't know if that is the specifically the offer on the table. it started at president's opening offer 250. you could see a pathway forward to raise the threshold up to 400, $500,000 a year, any amounts below that don't get tax increase. any amounts above that get tax increase. end of the year fixes preventing medicare doctors getting large pay cut. amt fix, prevents millions of americans paying the amt reform kick that to next year. that is sort of the path aides were seeing some variation yeah that could actually pass the house or senate. whether that was specifically discussed here or on the table we don't know that. adam: rich, stay there. i want to bring in a few of our guests to talk more about this. for more on the shock wave of the developments, let's bring in dan cato, cato institute and rick unger. rick, let me start with you, are we optomistic both sides moved the discussion forward or is that a fancy way of saying they moved it forward and are ignoring each other. >> i say in a word no. i'm not feeling it. there is little reason to believe we'll see something small or
with after the first of the year, we don't get a deal in the next 24 hours, we can make adjustments there, but remember, the funding at the pentagon, without the wars, has doubled in the last ten years and it's a, you know, over 600 billion right now. so, 50 billion out of 600 billion, that's not even 10%. so, i really think we have is to keep perspective. these cuts aren't permanent, we can adjust them after the first of the year, i think we can make adjustments after the first of the year if we don't get a deal, still hopeful we get a deal if we don't, all of us know we can make adjustments. >> senator, thank you vet. i appreciate it. still hopeful, what senator mccaskill just said, martin, i can tell you, as i said, many of the colleagues coming out of the meeting, wrapped up right in there did not have that same assessment, see what happens, back to you. >> dana bash, thank you very much. >>> let's turn now to maine senator olympia snowe. she says it is time to talk about spending cuts and not limit the talk to just the tax hike question. senator snowe joins us now. let me start by as
. they don't expect the senate to take that. use that as a legislative vehicle and what's today? saturday. new year's eve is -- sorry. today's friday. too much holiday cheer. but come on. i mean -- >> he will be working the weekend. >> reporter: i am. oh my god. i don't want to get started on that. but anyway, you know, there's a lot at stake here. and, you know, it is late for this kind of thing to go on. and really, steve, i know you have been on board for this last several days, as well. most logical thing and perverse logic and chamber politics, any way to look at it is most logical thing is to go over and then come back to vote to cut taxes. but hey, you know, pride goeth before the fall. they could come up with a miraculous recovery. some sort of immaculate deal and may actually spur some conversations on the margins and maybe get to a voint where they can do something to avert, at least patch this to avaert total economic disaster. >> sounds like you're sticking by your january 10th pool bet there but from the republican perspective, i have to say the president already going back t

. >> optimistic yesterday, but we don't yet see an agreement. now the pressure is on congress to produce. if they don't, what i've said is that in the senate, we should go ahead and introduce legislation that would make sure middle class taxes stay where they are and there should be an up or down vote. everybody should have a right to vote on that. if republicans don't like it, they can vote no. but i actually think there's a majority support for making sure the middle class families are held harmless. >> if you go over to cliff, what's the impact on the markets which have been pretty confident now it would get done? >> it's hard to speculate on the market, but obviously, i think business and investors will feel more negative about the economy next year. if you look at projections of 2013, people generally felt the economy would continue to grow, housing would continue to improve, but what's been holding us back is the dysfunction here in washington. and if, you know, people start seeing that on january 1st this problem still hasn't been solved, that we haven't seen the deficit reduction

to open up the paycheck and see less money there. i don't think that people understandhat at this point. >> people get used to tax cs, that's the problem. shoort-term expiring tax cuts, including the payroll tax cut. you know, it's not the best way to solve a problem, but th cliff is the result of not coming up with deals and they're not going to come up with battery deal, if it's negotiated it's nothe ideal way to solve it outfter deficit. we'd like t gradually raise taxes and cut spending, but this is the best we're going to get. any of the deals they would agree on, probably leave us to the other guest's pot, close to a trillion dollars anyway, and it's the closest shot leaves us with aeficit and closing this gap we can't get out of. and since they lowered taxes they raise spending and two things have to convening and one unfortunate way to do it. >> aren't we in the end, toby, go to get a bad deal? >> from the market sndpoint e want to this riding in the last moment on white horses kumbayah, i believe the last hour the last day. >> the markets have been down had a bad week, selloff.

, and they said, "no, you don't understand." they said, "we specifically picked you out." >> he said, "from then on, i realized that i was not just abandoned; i was chosen. i was special." and i think that's the key to understanding steve jobs. >> another factor was geography. jobs grew up in northern california not far from palo alto. he was a gifted child who tested off the charts in a neighborhood populated by engineers. >> you know, he was raised in a place that was just learning how to turn silicon into gold. it had not yet been named silicon valley, but you had the defense industry; you had hewlett-packard, but you also had the counter-culture of the bay area. that entire brew came together in steve jobs. he was sort of a hippie-ish rebel kid, loved listening to dylan music, dropped acid, but also he loved electronics. >> jobs would eventually cross paths with a computer wizard at berkeley five years his senior named steve wozniak. they became fast friends, sharing a love of high-tech pranks and a disdain for authority. one of the things they did was to copy and improve an illicit dev

. >>dean: i can't believe how tight the seams are on this stuff. >>dan: which is good but when they don't fit perfectly square it doesn't let you fit it in. so you have to take a little bit of extra time to make sure you're locked in but once you're locked in, they're gone. >>dean: yeah, it's beautiful. >>dan: yeah. >>dean: now the colors were selected by nayna ramey. she's a set designer and she picked the colors. she laid out the design for the floor as well. she was involved in a lot of the selections here in the kitchen. so the colors we're using one is volcanic ash. this one is called shiitake. i love the names they come up with here. and this is an accent color. it's kind of a burnt orange and this is to accent the ceiling and some of the walls. let me show you how these in the design. now it's kinda hard to see exactly what this is at first, but these are the countertops. these are the top of the cabinets. this is the actual floor right here. so you can see the volcanic ash is kind of the background color. the shiitake are our rugs here and a little rug in the mud room. and then
